Paper Abstract

In the commercial arena, there is a variety of off-the-shelf hardware and software available to provide low cost, easily transportable multiispectral imagery (MSI) processing systems. Taking advantage of available equipment, and recognizing military interest in MSI, the Department of Defense (DoD) initiated the Multispectral Imagery Testbed (MIT) Project to assess the utility of a com-mercial off-the-shelf (COTS) MSI processing system for military applications. Geodynamics Corporation custom-designed the MIT using off-the-shelf hardware and software. The MIT is built around a COMPAQ 386/20 microcomputer configured with ERDAS high resolution image processing hardware and software and a variety of input/output devices. The MIT was deployed to four locations for 10-week periods, to include 2 weeks of hands-on training and 8 weeks of operational support. This paper describes the methodology used for system design and source selection and the results of the deployments.
